The Globe and Mail published their selection of the year's most spectacular coffee-table books last Saturday - click on Gwenyth below to view the web version.   

 On another note, is it just me, or does the Globe Style section just keep getting better and better? 

Moving along, the Vancouver Sun also published a booklist on Saturday, but focused on the top 10 lifestyle tomes of the season.  It included Bunny Williams Scrapbook for Living, Miller's Costume Jewelry, and The World Atlas of Whisky.  I found the list spot on!

Trying to nail down clever drink ideas for an upcoming holiday shin-dig?  Impress your guests with these creative cocktail recipes put together by the folks at the Calgary Herald. My particular favourite is the Tequila Mockingbird adapted from Drinkology by James Waller.

Letty Halloran Flatt, author of Chocolate Snowball, was recently profiled on the CBC's Cookbook Club.  For those of you seeking that gem of a cookie for your holiday bake swap - look no further.  The Linzer Heart Cookie recipe was reproduced along with the interview.  These cookies are SO adorable.

The Canadian Living Craft Blog gave away a copy of The Farm Chicks Christmas last week!  If you're a crafter do yourself a favour and keep this site on your blog roll.  They give stuff away a lot.

And finally, for gift ideas for the food fanatic on your list, I suggest taking a  look at this list of the best cookbooks of the year compiled by The Montreal Gazette.  Our favourites from the list?  Plenty by Diana Henry and Rose Elliot's New Complete Vegetarian, your foodie friends will not be dissapointed.
